Beatles of Malaysia: Mike, Herb & Silver Strings
Beatle suits or a variation? Definitely a variation but the Beatle boots are real. Mike & Herb (two, centre) are the "Beatles of Malaysia" and toured Malaysia, Borneo and Brunei with The Silver Strings in the mid-sixties. Young, yearning and yummy these boys sang and played together for some time and held everyone agog.
Beatlemania had struck its chords in Asia and none were out of tune.
But did we ever have Beatles of Singapore? Yes, Siva & James Choy but that's another blog.
